I created a large SQL procedure.  I've found a few errors I need to correct.  Is there a way to step through line by line in SQL Server 2005.  If not, how can I debug line by line to see what is causing an error.  SQL Server Profiler?  Thanks!!!

When you run the procedure you should be getting bunch of error messages in the result pane/message window below. It points on which line the error occured. You can go through that to look at the errors line by line.

I'm using some cursors, I'm trying to figure out which record is causing a foreign key error, that's why I would like to step through.  So there is no way to step through the sql code?

As aneesh adviced, you can do some print statment. When in the cursor executing statments (IN your Begin... End block) have print statment as the very first stament to print loop value, row number or something you can refere back to .. and when the error orccurs you know where it was terminated.
Eg,
BEGIN
Print  @LoopValue   --- Printing Values
Select .....
Insert INTO......
END
